Join Gerry O'Brien for an in-depth discussion in this video Using destructors, part of Learning C# (2014).
As we work with objects in our C# applications in the .NET framework, we…generate class files to form the definition…of the objects we'll use in our code.…When we instantiate an object, we use a constructor to build the object, or to…initialize instance variables, setting values for any of…the member variables that may exist within it.…We also have the opportunity to create something called…the destructor, which is used to tear down our object.…So, destructor is the opposite of a constructor.…We use a constructor to build our object in code or…to apply values to the instances of the objects that we…create within our code, and we use a destructor to tear…down or to destroy the object when we're finished with it.…Destructors cannot be used with structs.…So although structs in classes are similar in C# within the .Net framework, only…classes actually use destructors because classes are…reference types, and structs are value types.…Each class can have only one destructo, so you're not…going to have multiple destructors existing within a single class.…
